the nsa. kelly o'donnell explains. . this is a recurring -- >> the brief new look inside the secrets of the nsa. the director of national intelligence released several documents to show an oversight of the spy program that sweeps up americans phone record data and the government is acknowledged using a wider net than previously known in what is called hop analysis the nsa traces a call made by a terror suspect but can track the records linked to anyone the suspect calls and on to anyone each of those callers contact, and so on. senator dick durbin was clearly uneasy. >> when you look at the reach of this program and it envelopes a substantial number of americans. >> reporter: frustration between senators and the intelligence community starting with how nas leaker edward snowden was ever granted access to the country's most guarded spy programs. senator patrick leahy dismayed no heads are rolled at the nsa. >> a 29-year-old school dropout can come in and take out massive, massive amounts of data. it's obvious there weren't adequate controls. has anybody been fired? >> no, sir, not yet
and in response to what the nsa says is a real terrorist threat, 19 embassies have been shutdown around the world. is this just an attempt to make the nsa look good in and we'll find out what happens to a-rod today. you'll find out all about it right here next on current tv. at 9 eastern. >> i'm a slutty bob hope. the troops love me. tv and radio talk show host stephanie miller rounds out current's morning news block. you're welcome current tv audience for the visual candy.

to come out with some type of his own statement about where he wants to go with the nsa controversy and the transparency going on with its oversight. >> yes, thomas. we've been working our sources within the administration and on capitol hill. we have a bit of a picture of what the president plans to do. he can go on offense, anticipating, i'm sure, about the nsa leaks and the programs that the intelligence community has been undertaking to collect data and so forth. by going on offense, the president is expected to announce that he has plans to take steps to make reforms to some of those programs. with the intention of bringing greater transparency and to build more public confidence. these will be new steps, and he will lay them out in the specifics, but that's the overarching idea, how to create more confidence when there have been so many questions in the public about what these programs can do, the scope of them, the magnitude, and how to bring about more transparency. what could be declassified? we've seen steps toward that already with some of the details of these programs no
to make an opening statement about the nsa and major changes in the program of collecting met d meta-data becaf all the criticism he has got. people are anticipating and buzzing about that. we got into the east room, 20 minutes ahead of time. everybody gets their seats, and then they give the two-minute warning. the president comes in, and he covered a whole range of topics. this was really a media news conference. i'm sure you read and heard a lot about it. he talked about immigration reform. he talked about whether or not there would be a government shutdown. he talked about larry summers and janet yellen as new chairman of the fed. and he talked about putin. he said that putin sits in a slouch like's a high school likl student sitting in the back chair of the room like he's a high school student. he talked about the olympics, there was no way we were going to boycott the olympics but we were going to defend lgbt and coming home with a medal is the best way to combat bias in russia. then he spent the rest of the time talking about nsa, the spy program, and that's when he started. h
. that is unacceptable to most people. >> can we switch the topic to the nsa? this divide both parties. within your party, you see very strong defenders of the surveillance programs that are going on. i wonder if this is something you have gotten involved in. have you made a bridge or does not fall within your bailiwick? >> it certainly falls within my bailiwick on the official side. president obama talked about protecting our national security interests in protecting the american's privacy it is critical. i have spent time on this. i spent five years on the judiciary committee during the reauthorization process of the patriot act and has spent some time on the privacy and security issues. these programs, while in some ways they are troubling, it is going to make some uncomfortable. there is no question that those programs have given us an opportunity to prevent terrorist acts and those who would do americans harm. there appears to be no question that there are times when the programs have gone for their than americans are comfortable with. including president obama. that is why he has begun to release a
of things i really question, you know, the legality of the drone strikes and the nsa revelations are -- you know, it's like -- you know, jimmy carter came out and said we don't live in a democracy. and that's a little -- that's a little intense when an ex-president says that. so, you know, he's got some explaining to do. particularly for a constitutional law professor. >> must have. blue shirt day on bet. anyway, on friday, obama called a press conference to address his relationship with damon directly. >> we have conversations. they're candid, they're blunt. often times they're constructive. i know the press likes to focus on body language, and he's got that kind of slouch, looking like the bored kid in the back of the classroom, but the truth is that when we're in conversations together, often times it's very productive. >> that's exactly what you say when you dump somebody. oh, you know, it's actually not so bad. because you're not the one profess dumped, president obama. you know what's not very productive, interrupting a guy's workout. >> president obama is the guy doing push-ups and t
. it was the chairman of the judiciary committee, your colleague, senator leahy, who said wait a minute, i know the nsa tells us 54 plots in one way or another have been this wartded because of the program senator chambliss is refeing to, he says that's a bit of an joef statement, and he said it in open testimony this week. listen. >> open testimony is section 215 to thwart or prevent 54 terrorist plots. not by any stretch can you get 54 terrorist plots. this program is not effective. it has to end. so far i'm not convinced by what i've seen. >> do you agree with that? >> we had a meeting in the white house, saxby and i attended it with the president. there were about ten of us, democrats and republicans, from the house and the senate, and we spent an hour and a half in the president in the oval office, an hour and a half going over this nsa, debating it back and forth. the nsa 215 program that we're talking about here is a program on domestic surveillance. in other words, do we need to collect all of the phone records of all of the people living in america for five years so that if we're going to targ
goats? in 2011, the house of reps passed a bill that created the nsa's telephone meta data collection program. you remember that? but last week, the house barely voted down an amendment that would have killed the program. many voted against the tsa program this time including 50 who just two years ago voted to authorize it. so former george w. bush speechwriter added that this closes an intelligence gap that made the 9/11 attacks possible. anyway, prefer to focus on this. by the way, i meant to say nsa, not tsa. and the person who made that mess take on the prompter is now going to be punished at my apartment. so he says when terrorists succeed -- if this nsa program is taken away, the answer will be it's your fault. that sounds like something you would say. >> yeah. i would say that. i am so tired of both sides of the aisle the more ons that we e sending to washington. i'm going to make some hay off of it. and the great washington game, that they never like to actually talk about is that the congressman and the senators get briefed in on programs constantly. and they always know abou
new guidelines to make government surveillance more transparent. former cia and nsa director michael hayden noted today that the president never actually said anything had been done wrong. >> to me, the most telling thing she said was perhaps something he didn't quite say. he didn't suggest he was going to operationally change this program. i mean, there's no suggestion that what he was doing, and what president bush was doing before him with regard to these programs was anything other than lawful, effective and appropriate. >> on "meet the press," republican iowa congressman steve king stood by his comments about immigrants he made last month, saying that his remarks about drug smugglers outnumbering valedictorians were accurate and new legislation granting the shorter path to citizenship would not differentiate between the two groups. >> my heart goes out to the valedictorians brought here by their parents. but we cannot put our sympathies for people in that condition greater than our love for the rule of law, or the sovereignty of the united states of america. >> the conservative
allows the nsa analysts to collect nearly everything a user does on the internet. that includes personal e-mails, on line chats, web searches and social media activity like facebook chats and private messages. and according to training materials, slides released today. it seems that all an analyst needs to get started is a personal e-mail address or ip address. the guardian x key score collects so much information, though, it can only be stored for three to five days. one nsa report from 2007 estimated that there were 850 billion call events collected. and stored in the nsa data bases. and close to 150 billion internet records, each day. the document says one to two billion records were added according to the guardian. today, the white house said that not all of the information in the guardian piece today is true. >> the intelligence community has explained allegations of widespread unchecked access to information are false. access to tools is limited to only personnel who are required access for their assigned tasks. and there are multiple supervisory checks for those in the system who

's nothing phony about an nsa program that almost failed on the house floor. >> according to data from pew majorities across all groups express little or no trust in washington. >> you need to have trust in government for the government to work effectively. >> good evening. perino. in the latest news about the nsa giving americans yet another reason to distrust our government, "the washington post" revealing that the nsa has broken privacy rules, thousands of times, every year since 2008. and the chief judge of the secret court that's supposed to police the government's spying program says that the court has limited ability to do its job. the nsa issuing this response, quote, when nsa makes a mistake and carrying out its foreign intelligence mission, the agency reports the issue internally and to federal overseers and aggressively gets to the bottom of it. congressman goudi joins us. thank you for being here on a friday evening. let me ask you. when you first heard of this news last night, were you surprised or in line with what you thought was probably happening? >> well, dana, i would li

for myself over the weekend. first of all, let me make a few comments. nsa picked up some chatter. it is about time nsa got back to the business they're supposed to be in. secondly, al qaeda has made a point for years now not to use cell phones and other communications. dana made a point before the show maybe they're desperate. my guess is some of it may be just to throw us off. the third thing, if we hadn't closed embassies and something happened, you all would be all over it. and the last thing i will say, embassies have been closed the last 75 years as circumstances dictate. this may be more closures, goes to teddy roosevelt when they closed some. i would not consider this american weakness. and also the yemens, not rogue or research, clearly upset, right winger. >> the bar scene is where all of the freaks hang out. that's the deal. >> dana, critics at the nsa would say this is really convenient for this to happen while the programs are under fire and snowden is embarrassing us, now we can come say look at all that we uncovered. >> i am uncomfortable talking about intelligent t

of the nsa program? >> of all things on his plate, snowden leaks, the question of what does nsa do and what is surveillance about, politically had a bigger impact than the other various controversy. some argue are politically driven and others more serious than that. this one had the actual impact when you look at the polls it's that's where you see skepticism rising among particularly among folks under the age of 40 who spent a lot of time online and he has been getting a lot of advice, the president has, from outside advisers saying you have to be more public in explaining and if your going to defend and in defending. create more transparency and do these things. you have to get out there and explain these programs because you're taking on water on this topic with a group of voters and a group of americans who are inclined to be supportive of you on other things. you can't afford to lose another piece of the american electorate because you have other things you have to push. >> and this comes after congressional leaders met with him for 90 minutes ten days ago. they told him that there ha

latest on the nsa leaker and his life ahead. >> hi, there, mara. edward snowden has, it would appear, settled into his new russian life as quietly as he spent most of his almost six weeks ined is that transit zone inside moscow's airport. so quiet, in fact, that some paparazzi and journalists who were apparently stalking him all that time are calling it anticlimatic. the only information we're actually getting about snowden is coming from his lawyer anatoly kucherena. he found a place to stay, an undisclosed location in moscow. he is keen to learn the russian language and culture and looking, according to kucherena, for a job as a human rights activist. he's also giving up, apparently, on the idea of seeking asylum in any latin american country. that means that he's probably taking the advice of his father, lonnie snowden who told me in an interview we did on thursday from washington, d.c., that if he were his son, he would stay here in russia and make a life of it because it's a strong country, he said, that could resist extreme u.s. pressure to actually to hand his son over to face

in a big way to more transparency with -- when it comes to the nsa issues. that source is a white house person telling her that they are just taking what the white house says and just regurgitating it. >> i see you weighing in on this. you want to weigh in. let me read something quickly. it is an op-ed from "the wall street journal." it says the disconnect lies in the failure to appreciate while al qaeda central has been badly weakened by u.s. counter terrorism efforts the group was never close to being extinguish and adapted. anyone else in the media see at this time same way. >> i think that's correct. just not what we were told last year. look, i mean, the president got away on jay leno saying we don't have a domestic spying program and media took that, too. nsa does not exist. tom bloomer at news busters caught a great example of where the media covered for president on "the tonight show" talking about the geography of ports and talked about the gulf coast ports. charleston, savannah, jacksonville. atlantic ocean. and the media -- ap -- words to cover him on that. remin reminds me.
